If our experience in Australia is anything to go by then look out!! Plans change daily, schools open and then close again weekly due to a student or teacher with covid, some schools are taking some year levels and some are taking small groups from all year levels. There's constantly changing advice which differs state to state and sometimes even suburb to suburb. After nearly 2 terms of mostly online schooling there are kids are just barely learning and others have given up. Of course there are exceptions, parents and kids totally thriving during home schooling, but for many reasons ie. parents who work, have several kids in several year levels to supervise and help, or for a myriad of other reasons, this school year has been pretty much chaos. I hope American schools are prepared for a crazy next few months ahead. Good luck.
